Worldwide Peace poster competition 

PAGE 12 WORLWIDE1

Tenerife Isla Sur Lions Club were very pleased when Wingate School, Cabo Blanco agreed once again to participate in this prestigious Lions International Poster Competition to represent the south of Tenerife for 2016. There are schools from more than 200 countries taking part

 The competition encourages young people to think about peace and creatively express what it means to them and to share their own unique vision with the world.

 The posters are evaluated on three criteria at each level of judging, originality, artistic merit and expression of this year’s theme “A celebration of Peace”

 Tenerife Isla Sur Lions Club has for many years fostered a vibrant youth involvement in our community, especially with holidays for under privileged and handicapped children. The Club President Norman Goodall and Edna Goodall, the organizser of the scheme, were part of the judging team along with Shelby Healey, art teacher at Wingate.

 Individual winners were presented with their awards during the school assembly. Because the artistic stan-dard shown by these young children was so high the judges decided to award two highly commended plaques to two of the other entrants. The winner and the two merit awards along with the rest of the entries were of such a high standard, it needed much deli-beration by the judges to evaluate the 30 entries.

The winning poster has now been sent to Madrid to be judged again on a national level, the winner will then represent Spain. The international Grand Prize winner and family receive a holiday during the awards ceremony on Lion’s day at the United Nations in New York USA. The first prize is 2500 Dollars with a further 23 prizes of 500 dollars.

The winner pictured is Janvi, with Tiger and Ania both highly commended.
